Not even a person in a position of power, such as the Magistrate of the Electoral Court of Aguascalientes, and prominent member of the LGBTI+ community Jesús Ociel Baena Saucedo, is safe from the hate crimes caused by the divisive speech of President López Obrador and his erroneous policies to combat crime.
During the morning conference of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the death of Magistrate Jesús Ociel Baena Saucedo was announced on the morning of this Monday, November 13. The head of the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC), Rosa Icela Rodríguez, indicated that competent investigations would be carried out to clarify the facts.
“We are just finding out. The investigation is going to be carried out, it is not known up to this moment whether it was a homicide or an accident,” AMLO stated from the state of Sonora.
The magistrate would have been found inside a home located in the Punta del Cielo subdivision, detailed the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Aguascalientes, who added that there was another deceased person at the location, presumably his partner.
What did the magistrate die from?
Until now, the state authorities do not know what the reason for their death was, but an investigation folder has already been launched to find those responsible for the events since on social networks and local media it is suggested that the bodies were found with stab wounds.
Jesús Ociel Baena was known because the Government of Mexico recognized him as a magistrate, being the first official or public servant to obtain a non-binary gender while in a public position. In addition, Baena was a renowned activist for LGBTI+ rights for whom he fought so that his rights were respected.
He was the creator of initiatives that sought to provide a better quality of life for trans childhoods, for equal marriages, and for public policies to support the recognition of people’s identities.
